Brent steps up nicely in Estimated
This seems to be well-known and appreciated show, so no need for additional commentary from yours truly..
I would only add that in the Estimated Brent overcomes his usual reluctance to venture into more jazz-inflected odysseys by tripping out nicely just before the extended Jerry solo.
Brent always frustrated me , with his obvious technical competence but often somewhat lowbrow rendering of Dead material. He rarely rose into the cerebral element, where I'm sure he could have performed capably if it had been to his taste.
So this is a welcome exception...............

Monster Show! Good Recording.
Hey Steve, you're being too kind. This is a monster show recorded fairly well.
After being heartbroken with Jerry's vocal breakdown and disappointed with the 28th of October, the 27th not being much better, it's nice to see Jerry in reasonably good voice tonight. That was not typical for 1979 and would have been the only drag on this inspired evening - ol' Jer just being able to vocally hold it together through Black Peter. The "X" Factor is definitely in da room hanging around with a great fifteen minute Sugaree out of a good TMNS. The only few down sides are a little oversaturation in those two that can't be fixed and a U.S. Blues taken from another, lesser quality recording. I deciding to add a little pep to Alabama > Promised Land by shortening its length thirty seconds in Sound Forge and shortening TLEO by sixty seconds as well; gave the show some reverb since this audience recording is so stark; and added treble with the recording being just a touch flat. Thanks guys for the tape, the transferring, and the upload. It helps renew my faith in 1979.
